K3's ERP solution is future perfect
Andy Latham, Managing
Director of K3 Syspro

K3 Syspro, a leading provider of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions already has a product that contains all the characteristics that will be offered by ERP providers in two years time.

According to Michael Krigsman, CEO of Asuret Inc, quoted in a recent report published by Inside-ERP, 'ERP of the future promises to be simplified, more accessible and easier to use.' He goes on to say 'ERP must be simplified both in terms of the deployment of the system and aligning it with an organisation's business processes.'

However, K3's own SYSPRO solution already contains all the qualities highlighted by Michael Krigsman. SYSPRO is the first ERP solution that was designed alongside an ERP implementation methodology that not only speeds up the installation process but also enables organisations to streamline their business processes during the installation of SYSPRO ERP.

Andy Latham, Managing Director of K3 Syspro said: "SYSPRO Business Process Modelling enables businesses to reconfigure their business processes when new functionalities are needed to maximise efficiencies. Because SYSPRO streamlines existing business processes rather than replacing it, implementations are a lot more successful than other ERP implementations."

The report also states that in two years time, 'the user experience will change to both simplify ERP and make it easier to use. User Interfaces (UIs) are likely to become more finely grained and tailored to user roles and user groups.'

K3's SYSPRO solution was one of the first ERP provisions to offer additional ways to customise the SYSPRO software User Interface to further efficiency and security. The SYSPRO Fluid Interface Design, which was introduced over three years ago, gives users the unprecedented customisation and control abilities over virtually every aspect of the desktop user interface. SYSPRO also offers the ability for system administrators to control the customisation of the SYSPRO UI by applying roles to operators. Layouts can be designed per role and applied to any docking plane, entry or display form, list view, data grid and SYSPRO Office Integration search results.

The report concludes by stating that future ERP solutions will provide 'more advanced analytics tools that will help companies have faster access to the amounts of data that ERP collects,' adding that it will also become 'greener.'

K3's SYSPRO solution already utilises .NET and Service Orientated Architecture (SOA) to extend the functionality of SYSPRO ERP. Furthermore, SYSPRO as a solution began its foray into 'green' a decade ago, when the SYSPRO Material Yield System was developed to enable SYSPRO users dealing in cut-shapes to return metal, pipe and tube scraps to inventories, saving them from landfills and allowing companies to profit from using the scraps to fulfil future orders. Most recently SYSPRO developed SYSPRO Project Green Enable, establishing a series of green programmes across energy efficiency, waste reduction and re-use of resources.

Andy Latham added: "Inside ERP's report states that ERP software will be everything SYSPRO already is in two years time. We are delighted that K3 has for some time, a future perfect ERP solution that is trustworthy, reliable, easy to use and which is outperforming in terms of total cost of ownership. In two years time, when other ERP solutions do catch up we will have further pushed the boundaries of ERP with SYSPRO."
